Most were colored black but this example is a true feldgrau color throughout the material and the outer shell painted with a flat feldgrau lacquer. This color must have been meant for Army use. Vulkan Fibre produced these helmets from 1935-36 and entered their helmet in the new helmet trials where the M35 steel helmet won out. Many surplus black ones went to fire departments during and after the war. I think this one is in very good to excellent condition, retaining most original paint. The liner and straps show a little wear but are still supple. The chin straps make me think motorized parade drivers. One of these Vulkan Fibre parade helmets should be in your German helmet collection. Thanks for viewing the photos carefully and please see my other listings.
